Posted by David on June 5, 2012 in Oregon Ducks, Sports |

I’ll never forget the thrills and excitement of an undefeated 2010 Ducks season and the electricity that was in the stadium as we entered it 2 hours before the BCS Championship Game. The Ducks lost that game but they did a great job of building off of the season and turned it into a successful […]
